I still recommend removing them regardless whether or not it crashes again, just because they're loaded and are eventually going to cause issues in the long run even if they so happen not too now. But other than that, yeah keep up with DV and Handbrake and see how things go.

Hi Vir,
So I have some updates to share. I had verifier running for a couple of days, and I encoded video for 10 hours straight yesterday, with no issues at all. Then this morning I tried opening this program that I use to convert VHS to DVD (honestech VHS to DVD 5.0 Deluxe) and after opening it would immediately BSOD. I was able to reproduce it every time I opened the program (did it 4 times). I then turned verifier off, and now I can open the program with no issue at all. Is this something to be concerned about, or do you think it's just that verifier is stress testing certain drivers and opening this program conflicts with it? I attached a new zip file with new diagnostics.

I think what I'm going to do today is keep verifier off and run encoding all day to see if I get a BSOD.

This is happening because the software is resurrecting an old ATI TV card driver (emBDA64.sys; dated 2007) that does not comply to Windows 7 driver coding practices, and is performing an illegitimate operation that will no doubt cause some form of corruption. While Windows 7 regularly does not panic about this behavior because its system checks aren't that stringent, Driver Verifier established a check that does catch this bad behavior and will crash the system as a result.

As for the driver itself, I cannot seem to get much info about it other than this thread and the description below from the Driver Reference Table site I use often:

Driver Description: USB 28xx OEM Filter (TV Card) ATI chipset
Driver Update Site: Driver
Beyond that, I cannot help you as I'm not familiar with TV cards nor this specific program you're using. If you can find some update to this driver that'd probably be your best option, but for now, not sure.
